This seventh release in Ralph Bass series features greatest living exponent of Chicago blues Magic Slim and Chicago slide guitarist Joe Carter in separate sets. First six compositions are credited to Magic Slim, last seven except Route 66 (credited to Fred Below) - to Joe Carter.
Needless to say Magic Slim is the torch bearer of Chicago sound, which he never lost during his prolific career. Four piece band creates a sound even profane can say is the blues. Yes, it's the blues, truly original and authentic, and it always was the blues.
On the other hand, critically lesser acclaimed Joe Carter's Elmore James' inspired session is thrilling, awakening memories of post-war Chicago blues with one great exponent participating in the session represented by Sunnyland Slim on piano.
